LEGO DUPLO is for the tiniest LEGO fans. The bricks they build with are twice as big as the regular ones, preventing choking hazards. These are great for toddlers who are just now forming motor skills.
Let’s look at the top 10 bestsellers for DUPLO so you can have help making a buying decision.
LEGO DUPLO Building Set
This set is a fantastic starter kit if you’re buying for a child who doesn’t yet have any LEGOs. Your child can build for hours, making houses and a wide variety of transportation items like cars and airplanes.
LEGO makes it easy for your child because the base is already built for a wagon, so they can just add to the main components. If they build a home on the LEGO building plate, then they can add a window and other details before they begin playing with the Mini figure that comes with it.
When playtime is over, put all of the DUPLO LEGOs back into the storage box so it can be put away easily. If you want to help your child build, then use the instruction book that comes with it, giving you several ideas to fuel the creativity in your child.
DUPLO LEGO Ville Baby Zoo
This set is perfect for kids who go crazy over a day at the zoo. Your child gets 18 large pieces that include the animals, a zookeeper, and bricks they can build with.
Not only do kids love playing with animals, but they’ll enjoy building their environment, too. It improves their hand-eye coordination as they maneuver the elephants, giraffes, lions and polar bears. Kids ages 2-5 will love this set.
LEGO DUPLO My First Zoo
Similar to the other zoo set, this is a bit bigger – with a whopping 60 pieces to play with. The zookeeper has a vehicle to ride around in, and he takes care of cute little animals like tigers, elephants, giraffes, polar bears, and fish.
This is a very colorful set, and it’s perfect for younger kids or those who are almost ready to grow out of the DUPLO set and possibly merge this one with the classic LEGOs.
LEGO DUPLO Disney Princess Cinderella’s Castle
At the toddler age, parents usually buy gender-specific toys for their children to play with, but kids don’t really go by that. Boys and girls alike will enjoy the Cinderella DUPLO set because there’s a castle involved!
It features a Cinderella figure and of course, her Prince Charming. There are 77 pieces to play with, and kids can have tons of fun exploring the two-story castle that’s fitted with a fireplace, chandelier, and more.
LEGO DUPLO Bricks & More Deluxe Brick Box
For kids who need more, there’s the deluxe DUPLO box of building pieces. This set comes with not one, but two figures. It has a nice big building base plate and 102 pieces in the set.
There are really neat details included, like windows for the houses they build – and a wagon base that they can use to create special vehicles. You might even work with your child to build the items inside the booklet that’s included, where several creations are spelled out for you.
LEGO Brick Themes DUPLO My First Farm
Kids love farms – with tasks to do and animals to care for – it’s a child’s dream come true. This set includes a farmer figure, plus four cute animals for him to care for – including a baby cow, pig, sheep and chicken.
The farm itself includes the farmhouse and a tractor. The farmer has a pitchfork he can use on the farm when caring for the animals, and there are lots of bricks for your child to build with.
LEGO DUPLO Creative Cakes
The Creative Cakes set is fun for girls and boys who like to cook in the kitchen with Mom and Dad. They aren’t cooking up real cakes, but can use the building bricks to create culinary delights instead.
They get a couple of muffin cups with a trio of muffin tops, three candles, flowers, two meringues, and a serving tray that’s really the storage box lid. It also includes a “recipe set” in the 55-piece box.
Kids have fun using this set to celebrate pretend birthdays, or to make tea parties come to life. Parents rate it high – not only for the cuteness factor and how much fun their kids had with it, but because it was considered very unique in the LEGO building world – incorporating cooking into building.
LEGO DUPLO Disney Princess Snow White’s Cottage
While grown up are enjoying the adult version of Snow White’s story, kids are still fixated on the Disney animated series. This 28-piece LEGO set brings it all to life with Snow White’s cottage they can play with.
Of course they get a Snow White figure, but they also have bricks and pieces that add details, like a window, table, chair, plate with apples, and more. The cottage has a tree and flower outside of it and a bird and white rabbit that completes Snow White’s environment.
LEGO Bricks and More DUPLO Pink Brick Set
Some Moms and Dads are extremely happy to see girls being catered to more with LEGO sets this year. And the company hasn’t left the DUPLO crowd out of the scene, either – with a pink and classic colored brick box set of 30 pieces ready for purchase.
It’s more of a girly set, with feminine colors, little animals like rabbits with carrots, flowers and window pieces for a cottage they might build. They can use their imagination or the booklet that’s included to steer them in their creative endeavors.
LEGO DUPLO Play with Letters
If you want your child to familiarize him or herself with the alphabet, then there’s no better way than to integrate it into a fun toy – and this set has it all! You get a total of 62 pieces, including all of the letters of the alphabet.
The letters become part of the world that your child builds. They get additional pieces, like the child figure, a cat, a wagon base that allows them to create a vehicle, a couple of windows, two flowers and a chair!
They can either start from scratch or use the booklet to design the inspiring creations that are mapped out for them. This set helps kids get used to letters, but it also helps with spelling. Start with their name and then branch out into other words.
